Free Realms
« on: November 18, 2008, 03:05 PM »

Saw this posted on another board and wanted to pass it along to my nobs friends:

    
Beta sign-up has begun!

What is Free Realms, you ask? From their website:

Quote:
Free Realms is a free 3D virtual world with stunning unique graphics and fun, quirky activities. Free Realms is an attitude. It's innovative, dynamic and deep. Welcome to Free Realms, where there's so much to see and explore!
It will apparently be a "child safe", free-to-play game, with added content for a monthly membership fee ($4.99), as well as an in-game cash shop.

Check out the promotional videos at http://www.freerealms.com/whatIsFreeRealms.vm


Also from the other board:

Underage Restrictions

Please note that underage accounts will be subject to certain restrictive controls for enhanced protection of children in our online environment. Sony Online Entertainment hopes to make Free RealmsTM a safe place for people of all ages!

The restrictions are as follows:


Quick Chat
Quick chat is a version of real-time text conversation between users that gives the user choices of pre-determined phrases and words. Players under age 13 are only able to select and view text from a list created by Sony Online Entertainment and are NOT able to insert any personally-created text.

Limited Forums Participation
Free Realms supports a Community Forum for users to socialize and chat about the game. Sony Online Entertainment takes its oversight of this fan forum seriously; as a result, our Community Team will be moderating the content posted to the forums by players. Players under age 13 will not be able to access this site other than content created by Sony Online Entertainment, however parents are able to change their child(ren)'s permissions to permit their child(ren) to view the forums, via a parental password, if they wish to do so.

Limited Profile Functionality
Each Free Realms account is provided a player profile page displaying his/her character images, game achievements, news items, collections, gallery, character stats and more. Players under age 13 are permitted to communicate through the quick chat system to post comments on friends' profiles using pre-determined words and phrases, but are not able to input user-generated chat.


The game looks really awesome--I love how it looks like it will be so flexible, so everyone can play their way.  I signed up!


ETA:  The original quote from the other board also included a link to IGN but it didn't copy over for me.  There is more info on the game, screenshots, and videos.  Be sure to check out the 2nd video--it really has a lot of info!

I did not sign up.  It does sound interesting.  Right now I been trying to drop games due to less time available to play.  Please keep us updated on how it goes.

I did it seems to have the feel of wizards I love the graphics. But more of a wait and see. I though elfs would be awesome when we first saw the preview. But then they made the character flat.BUt still giving elf a wait and see approach.

I read once the last article you posted, I thought it was a good game but since then, I've played other games. I might try it once though.

Came across these links on another board:

Beach Area Preview:http://www.gametrailers.com/player/46754.html

I keep hearing that Beta is supposed to open soon and that those of us that pre-registered will be getting invitation emails, but I haven't heard anything yet.

Finally got my invite yesterday and set my character up tonight.  We are not allowed to discuss the game so I can't really say much.  I will say the game looks great and even though I felt a little lost I did have a great time with it!  My name there is Christine Sweetdream.  If anyone else gets in, let me know.  Hopefully I'll get some more time to explore tomorrow and maybe I'll have figured out how to add friends by the time I hear from you!!

princessmadiro has been playing almost every day now since she got her invite last saturday. It reminds me of wizards but what is soooo nice is  that princess can walk around and do almost everything using the mouse! Her title was approved as Princessmadiro. I haven't had a chance to create my character yet. It looks too task oriented for me so not sure i will play it very much but I'll give it a try soon.

I got my invite last week (I signed up months ago) and am now DreamTulip (human) there.  I sent in a message to help because I read that you couldn't change your title but at the time I didn't realize that we could put a different one from the drop down options.  They were great and replied and chaged it right away for me. Woot for excellent customer service!  :)  It does seem like a great game so far, it does have a Wizard101 like feel but a lot more variety and not all battle based like Wizards.  I know we can't say much about it, but I hope to see some familiar titles there.  PM me if you want to try to set up a time to meet up.

Well I downloaded the the game last night. And it just confuses me. The sight movement with the mouse makes me dizzy and I am just not getting it. Maybe I will give it another try on the weekend.

Stick with it littlebelle!  It's confusing to me too, but I'm starting to get it.  Their forum has been a great help.  There's some members there that are putting together guides that have been helpful to me.  And I think the developers do plan to add more in-game tutorials/help eventually.  I did get my wdwdreamin name approved.  Setting up a meet may be the best way to set up friends though. 

Since we can't talk about the game here, if you get stuck, send me a PM.  I'm far from an expert but I'll help when I can.
